For Transfer

  • Transport Isolette
    Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Transport Isolette

    Babies that are from outside of London and no longer need our level of intensive care, will be transferred to a Level 2 unit in a hospital closer to home. This is an important step to transitioning to the next level of care and eventually home.

  • These babies are stable and usually still require hospitalization for monitoring weight gain and learning to eat.
  • Possibility of transfer is discussed at daily medical rounds. Please talk to the medical team about your preferences and any concerns.
  • You will be notified before your baby is transferred.
  • A baby will be transferred in a transport incubator accompanied by an NICU nurse. The baby will be monitored during their transport.
